Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is nearing completion on the build of its 007 Le Mans Hypercar, with the team sharing footage over the weekend of the car undergoing its first rollout at its base in Italy.
This comes after the team previously also shared footage of the twin-turbo V8 engine being fired up for the first time.
The latest batch of images shared by the American outfit on its social media pages shows that the first of two 007s is almost completed, with only the final bodywork components awaiting construction.
The team has also stated that it is likely to undergo the first on-track tests later this week, which will take place at the Vallelunga circuit in Italy.
In addition to the progress on the Hypercar project, Glickenhaus also announced that it has entered into a partnership with Motul, which will see the company provide lubricants to the LMH projects, as well as engineering support for its both its racing and road car projects.
“I am so excited to enter into a long-term collaboration with Motul to provide our road-legal and race vehicles with Motul lubricants,” said Glickenhaus Racing president James Glickenhaus. “I’m especially happy that their technical experts will be working with engineers to customize their lubricants where necessary to our vehicles as they drive and race from the Baja to the Nurburgring, to the WEC, to Le Mans, and on to Dakar.
“It’s a dream come true to be racing a car with our name on it in the top class at Le Mans under Motul’s sponsorship.”
Nicolas Zaugg, chief value officer at Motul, added: “Being official lubricant partner to the FIA WEC and 24 Hours of Le Mans, plus recommended exclusive lubricant by Gibson for all the V8 engines used in the LMP2 category, proves beyond doubt Motul’s devotion to endurance racing.”
“However, the involvement in the new Hypercar category was missing from our portfolio, and that has now been fulfilled with our partnership with Glickenhaus.
“We are excited to be part of such a great technical challenge, as well as the human adventure represented by a team like Glickenhaus entering the new Hypercar category. Our bets experts are working closely with Glickenhaus staff on finalizing the car, and it is crucial for us that the experience we will gain together will benefit not only future Glickenhaus racing models, but also their street-legal road and off-road cars.”
